Three cheers to all of our great activists who have continued with us as we have taken the fight against puppy stores from Pet Works in La Mesa to California Pets in Carlsbad to Pups and Pets in Santee to Puparazzi in Mission Valley. Stay tuned!
AUSTIN (KXAN) - The Austin City Council unanimously approved an ordinance that would ban the retail sale of puppies and kittens while placing new requirements on local breeders.
Anyone selling a puppy or kitten will have to have the proper registration documents and also spay or neuter the animal before selling. Breeders can sell dog and cats that are not spayed or neutered only if they pay a $50 fee per animal.
The Austin Animal Advisory Commission asked for the ordinance in hopes of helping the City reach its goal of having a no-kill animal shelter.
“It is a good ordinance and will further the mission of no-kill,” said David Lundstedt, with the commission. “I am glad it passed.”
